My first order of package bees shipped on Tuesday. I'm guessing this means delivery on Thursday. All is ready...the woodenware, syrup, even the Post Office has been given the heads up. Now the question...good ol' Mother Nature, according to the weather gurus anywho, is set to drop rain for the next 10 days in a row. I'm hearing that 5 days in the shipping cage is the limit. Am I better off biting the bullet and installing the bees during the first break in the rain fall or should I hold off in the hopes that the weatherperson's crystal ball is wrong? I'm hearing that the little darlings might be somewhat ornery during the cloudy weather...not particulary looking forward to 10,000+ cheesed off bees but that's a far cry better than have them kick the bucket before they get into their new digs. Any advice or suggestions???
